I had the pleasure of meeting Oliver Sain and recording in Archway Studios, his studio, where Rescue Me was recorded in Saint Louis. His home and studio are
pictured on the cover that represents this piece. His breathing
techniques and all around musical talents would be hard to match. I was very sad to hear that he had died and put together this short piece.
Sain Jr. was an American saxophonist, songwriter, bandleader, drummer
and record producer, who was an important figure in the development of
rhythm and blues music, notably in St Louis, Missouri.
